Certificate Forgery: A’Ibom Gov, PDP Deny Support for Atiku’s Allegations Against Tinubu


Governor Umo Eno and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom state have vehemently denied any involvement or support for the alleged certificate forgery case against President Bola Tinubu brought forward by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

In a press release issued by the state PDP publicity secretary, Borono Bassey, the party has distanced itself and Governor Eno from any association with social media reports suggesting they were celebrating Atiku’s efforts in ‘exposing’ Tinubu.

The Akwa Ibom State PDP has characterized these reports as false and fabricated, attributing them to disgruntled and mischievous individuals with the aim of tarnishing Governor Umo Eno’s reputation in the eyes of President Tinubu.

The statement reads in parts:

“The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Akwa Ibom State was drawn earlier today, to an obviously fake news item being circulated on social media alleging that our Party and His Excellency, the Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Pastor Umo Eno was secretly celebrating Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s efforts in exposing President Tinubu’s alleged fake certificate:

“We hereby state as follows: The matter which is the subject of the fake news is in court and therefore Subjudice. By that very fact, neither the governor nor the Peoples Democratic Party at the state level is competent to comment on it.

“The Governor, His Excellency, Pastor Umo Eno as a law-abiding citizen, who believes in the supremacy of the law, has tremendous respect for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Alhaji Bola Tinubu, the PDP whose platform Pastor Umo Eno was elected as Governor, and the Presidential candidate of the Party, His Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

“The Governor of Akwa Ibom State is not a party on record in the suit referred to in this risible rumour and therefore can only await the judgement of the court, and he will join in the usual respectful and deferential chorus of “As the court pleases!!

“We urge well-meaning Nigerians to ignore the ill-intentioned attempt to drag the Governor of Akwa Ibom State and the State Chapter of our great Party, the PDP into a matter that is undergoing the processes of law.”
